Building and Code Enforcement
Patrick Blizniak, Superintendent of Building
Phone: (716) 652-7591
The Building Department's daily goal is to insure that all ordinances handled by this office are enforced as fairly and efficiently as possible and all buildings are built as safely as possible.
The Building Department serves the Town of Aurora along with the Village of East Aurora (http://www.east-aurora.ny.us/). The department enforces regulations and zoning associated with the construction of buildings and provides zoning district information pertaining to land use within each district. It reviews plans and conducts inspections to assure compliance with New York State Uniform Fire Prevention and Building Code, Town of Aurora and Village of East Aurora zoning code as well as various local, state and federal codes and standards. All building projects, ranging from decks and sheds to additions and major commercial structures, must meet standards of safety. In order to guarantee the proper and safe construction of all structures, permit(s) must be obtained before any project begins.
Obtaining a Permit
The Building Department receives and processes applications for the following:
Carbon monoxide alarms (or, where permitted, carbon monoxide detectors) shall be provided in all new and existing buildings and structures described in New York State Section 610.1, without regard to the date of construction of the building or structure and without regard to whether such building or structure shall or shall not have been offered for sale.
